Sony and the rootkit - know your digital rights

As the season of goodwill approaches many people will be thinking of handing out CD's to their friends and relatives - but BEWARE...! you might be handing someone a computer security risk without knowing. One that doesn't ask your permission to be installed, won't be detected by your normal security software and one that is almost impossible to remove without starting from scratch. Sony have sold CD's with whats known as a 'rootkit' software which will install their 'Digital Rights Management' protocols onto your PC when you insert the disc (whether you want it or not). For full info on this developing saga check out the Sony Rootkit Roundup: Part I, Part II, Part III. To see how some people are standing up for their rights click here.
